Security & Fire Protection Systems/ATM machines installation inside Shipping ports.


Dear Frank

Is it feasible and secure for ATM machines installation inside Shipping ports?.


These days many private ATM machines are being installed (ones that are not directly advertised as being part of a bank's network), and where the owner benefits from receiving proceeds from each transaction.  I don't imagine it would be difficult to set one up in a shipping port.  The difficulty I see is when you have to replenish the machine.  As a privately owned system, you would be responsible for filling it and wouldn't necessarily be able to employ armed and certified guard services.
